Three of my bears resting happily on my chair

waiting to be placed in good homes.

Even though I hate giving them away, I have to because there are too many of them in my house. I've made over 100 bears and given away many to relatives, new moms and babies, and students o...

  My family doesn't quite get my knitting obsession. I mean they all like the occasional sock...  "umm, Mom it's summer time I just don't wear socks year round, only need one pair... thanks!"  I have a bad habit of creating numerous things whether anyone wants them or...
